Révélée grâce à la série POSE, Indya Moore crève l’écran. Pourtant, cette réussite est le résultat d’un long combat pour l’acceptation des personnes trans. Portrait.
C’est la révélation du moment grâce à la série Netflix en vogue POSE. Indya Moore ne vous laissera pas indifférent, c’est certain.
Née dans le Bronx à New York , elle a quitté la maison familiale en raison de la transphobie de ses parents alors qu’elle n’avait que 14 ans. Elle traverse alors une période difficile, bougeant de foyer en foyer. Victime de harcèlement scolaire, elle abandonne l’école et tente de percer en tant que modèle. Elle posera pour Dior et Gucci, ponctuellement.
Mais son heure de gloire arrivera bien plus tard avec la série POSE récemment ajoutée sur Netflix. Elle y interprète le rôle d’Angel, une femme trans prostituée. Un an avant la diffusion de la série, elle vivait encore dans une auberge de jeunesse.

Loving, special thanks to my agency @imgmodels, & beloved @joshrotten for booking my first campaign: @louisvuitton’s @nicolasghesquiere makes history with their decision to cast me, their 1st (not last) openly trans woman of color for their pre-fall ss19 campaign. I am so honored to hold this iconic floral louis bag & to be part of this movement in fashion to reflect the reality of the varying types of people & women that exist and invest in this industry. I am so thankful & excited to see more fashion brands follow suit in diversifying their representations of humans/bodies in the fashion world. As we all know- fashion has influenced world culture in undeniable ways & continues to. It is our responsibility as people who’s bodies carry fashion over to it’s destinations- & not allow clothes we wear to define us. As a trans person of color via Bronx, NY I’ve commanded ownership over my body by demanding my freedom, right, the space to exist as my true self & place in this world. i’ve endured the consequences for applying absolute value to a life, my life- who’s worth is still up for debate today. I’ve endured the consequences for daring to define my existence as worthy & my worth as a valuable. I’ve risked it all, lost everything even myself many times to defy the denial of my life’s essentialism, necessity to be here, belong & be loved. I vow to continue to do so & inspire safe space through every part I take, every piece I wear & from every platform I speak- till living your true self is not a privilege anymore. This, is the definition i’ve brought to these clothes, from my blackness that is & has been said could never be bright & the gender that is said could never be right, these clothes reflect the true beauty, uniqueness & priceless nature of my body & value(s). I am eternally grateful to #LV for matching their clothing to my embrace. “These women embrace the various personalities that embody fashion at Louis Vuitton, be they stars or new faces, all of them share the same willpower, & confidence in their choices, and at the same time, reflect the eclecticism of the female identity.” -Nicolas Ghesquière #louisvuitton #LVprefall19 @collierschorrstudio

I’m gonna be off social media for a while. At least twitter anyway. I know its a hard stretch to ask for from social media and i’d like to acknowledge the ways those of us have been harmed seek accountability and affirmation from our community using the platforms. But for those of us who aren’t victims, consider the consideration of compassion before the impulse to ridicule. I am telling myself this as i ask of it from others. We need to find better ways to address issues and complexities in our community. We need to stop trivializing everything. Please. And also, it’s okay to address problems off social media. It’s also okay to acknowledge the complexity of an issue and the choice not to participate in it’s controversy and it also not mean that you are ignoring or justifying those harmed by not publicly holding those who’ve enacted harm accountable. Lets be more perceptive for the ways we enact in the same methods of systematic surveillance we are trying to refute, as marginalized people. Restorative justice and accountability can and is possible in privacy and without an audience to exacerbate process.
